Need more SSD space for addons and scenery...

Recommended Posts

My current 960 512Gb is full with OS, P3D, and addons.

Looking to add some photo scenery and DCS.  

Motherboard is Asus Z170 Pro Gaming which only has the one M.2 slot which is occupied by the 960.  Should I add an internal SSD via SATA or an external SSD via USB 3.1 Gen 2  (TypeA or TypeC)?

my only concern is optimum performance for data transfer and simulator performance.

experienced opinions appreciated.

 

thanks!

Before usb 3.1 gen 2 and being your concern performance, i would always answer internal, but this new usb gen announces 10GB way above of the 6GB of sata 3, so i dont know, i never tested an ssd of this...but i would go with the more cheap one.
